I have seen this picture at the beginning of each year on Facebook for the last few years.
Naturally, it was shared again at the beginning of 2019. I wasn’t going to attempt this BUT Michael’s just happened to have their Yarn Week sale at the beginning of January. So, it was the perfect time to buy 8 skeins of yarn and to start a new project!
I am a little Type A, So I created a color coded Excel spreadsheet with check boxes to help me keep track of my rows. I am keeping up pretty well so far. However, I think it looks pretty ugly at this point. I will post a picture of how it is coming along towards the end of January.
I decided to go with a chevron ripple stitch pattern instead of the pattern shown in the post. I like the shape so far, the colors just are not as excited to me. I am hoping that over the course of the year, it will look more appealing.
